School for Advanced Studies, we strive to prepare students for
post-secondary education by replicating the college
experience now. Our highly acclaimed and highly
qualified faculty, many of whom hold advanced degrees,
consists of over 100 teachers whose awards range from
district Teacher of the Year to National Board
Certification. Our teachers are chosen to be
members of our faculty not only for their
qualifications, but also for their commitment to
students’ success. Every teacher at our school
offers tutoring sessions before or after school and
participates in regular collaboration with colleagues to
better assess student needs and gain increased
performance results; the Paxon family prides itself on
fostering a rigorous, innovative, and caring academic
environment in which our students can begin to achieve
their lifelong goals.
In addition to our
rigorous and storied academic program, our 88 acre
campus, complete with full athletic facilities including
an Olympic-sized swimming pool, web access in every
classroom, a professional grade television production
studio, state-of-the-art science labs, and a newly
constructed black box theater offers students a taste of
the college life. We offer a wide variety of
sports teams, including football, golf, soccer,
lacrosse, wrestling, and bowling, many of which have
competed at district and regional levels.
Our diverse student body gives rise to a vibrant campus
life where all students can find their niche through a
wide array of community, academic, and social clubs,
including the prestigious National Honor Society, Mu
Alpha Theta, and Youth Leadership for Change.
Allow Paxon School for
Advanced Studies the privilege of nurturing and guiding
your child through his or her high school career and you
will be rewarded with a well-rounded young adult whose
transition to college will be smooth---because he or she
will have been there already.
